Who’s The Boss Listening To?

Who’s The Boss Listening To?

We showed Against Me! some wine-drenched love a ways back and got mostly grief for it. First comment: “This is absolute dog shit.” Sigh. If only Bruce Springsteen were a regular Stereogum commenter! We recently mentioned everyone covering the Boss, but ever wonder what current bands he might like to cover? Well, besides Against Me!, of course.

Over at rollingstone.com, you can listen to outtakes from the Springsteen interview in the current issue (right, the one with Bruce on the cover). Turns out he learns a lot about music from his kids (a little bit country, a little bit top 40), but he’s mostly digging bands that “create community” like Dropkick Murphys (“really good live … great live band”) , Against Me! (“New Wave, that’s a great record … love that record”), Social Distortion (“I’m still a big Social Distortion fan … one of the not-heralded-enough great American rock bands”). Of course, like most folks in the world he also digs “Umbrella.” We’re still hoping the man consummates his love for the National and adds a Nebraska-style spin to “Fake Empire.” Am sure Doveman would help out. And we’ll go ahead and assume the Boss digs Neon Bible.
